Paying for movies (or even Netflix, really) is so unnecessary over the summer. You may not enjoy the free air conditioning, but bringing your own snacks and sitting in the warm NYC breeze while watching that movie you kept meaning to see is one of the best parts of a New York Summer.
Speaking of all that, this year’s fourth annual Flicks on the Beach lineup, Coney Island’s free outdoor film festival, has finally been announced! Cool off (and sing along) with Frozen, enjoy summer classics like Dirty Dancing (try and carry a watermelon down to the screening), and vote for the audience choice film on August 18.
Mondays during July and August will turn the beach at West 10th Street into an outdoor movie theater with a a giant 40-foot inflatable screen. Films start at 7:30pm and sunscreen flasks are unofficially encouraged.
